Join us for this opportunity to discuss the modern-day repercussions of America’s long denial of full citizenship for African Americans.
Through September 14, CHS hosts Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow, a traveling exhibit from the New-York Historical Society. The exhibit explores the struggle for full citizenship and racial equality that unfolded in the 50 years after the Civil War. It explores the roots of modern-day issues such as voter suppression, mass incarceration, and white supremacist terrorism.
On June 6 and July 20, we invite members of the public to attend a special tour of the exhibition, followed by a group discussion of how the exhibition helps us to understand contemporary issues surrounding justice and equality . The tour will be led by CHS staff, and the discussion will be facilitated by staff from Everyday Democracy – learn more about their mission here.
This is a free event. Light refreshments will be served. Please let us know you’re coming by emailing [email protected]. Questions? Contact Adult Programs Manager Natalie Belanger at [email protected].
